See Linux-Kernel Archive: [PATCH v2 1/2] arm64: dts: rk3399: add support for firefly-rk3399 boardThis is good news. The newest ARM64 chip I’ve been wanting is going “mainstream”, with not just a kernel the FireFly maker can love, but everyone else. It’s not a perfect setup, but it’s a start and shows there’s life in this chip with users like me. That board certainly has the power I need to replace my current server but it still doesn’t support SATA directly. I would have to use the single Ethernet or USB3 interface to get to big/fast storage. Still, it’s affordable and can be extended through PCI-e. You can even buy a set-top box using the chip today at a very nice price. This would make a far better client than the Odroid-C2 as long as you love Android/Linux… I guess there’s a way I could put Debian GNU/Linux on that.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
